        The Power of Popular Songs | The Great War

        Listen to the way songs helped spread the news and influence opinion before the United States entered World War I, in this video adapted from The Great War: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE. Through recordings and sheet music, the words to popular songs written in Manhattan’s “Tin Pan Alley” served as both entertainment and a news source at a time when many people didn’t read newspapers or couldn’t read English. This resource is a part of The Great War: AMERICAN EXPERIENCE | Collection.
